The Land, 1962


Published 1962


"Television Documentary: Chet Huntley reports on the decline of small American agricultural communities and examines the possible extinction of the farmer.

Reel 1: Explains that the farmer leaves his land because it is worn out, he is unable to grasp or afford new farm technology and prices for his crops are falling. Shows how agricultural research at Kansas State University and University of Nebraska has been a major factor in the growth of agricultural production.

Reel 2: Explains that production in America has tripled since 1940 with mechanization. The farmer harvests his crops to make the most of each acre despite government programs to control production and raise prices. Farmers explain their fears of disastrous price disparities in the market. Points out that the farmer's economic security is vital to the national economic well-being."
